Cam Newton (CAR) – No brainer here. Back to back 400+ yard efforts in his first 2 NFL starts. Now he has the luxury of heading to Jacksonville, who boast one of the leagues worst secondaries.
Ben Tate (HOU) – Arian Foster not likely to play in week 3 after re aggravating his hamstring. Rookie Ben Tate who has had back to back 100 yard games in his first 2 NFL starts should again see a lot of touches and yards against a shaky saints run defence.
Owen Daniels (HOU) – Texans vs Saints in week 3 has the potential for a lot of fantasy output. IF the Texans want to keep up with Brees an company Matt Schaub is going to need to play well and spread the ball out to more than just Andre Johnson. I believe his skilled TE Owen Daniels will be looked to often.
AJ Green (CIN) – the 49’ers have been the worst in the NFL through 2 weeks at defending WR’s fantasy production. AJ Green has ridiculous talent but wasn’t given much a chance in his rookie year because no one thought a Bengal QB could get him the ball enough. Through 2 games Green has 11 receptions for 165 yards and 2 TD’s. Extreme talent meets a terrible secondary.
Danario Alexander (STL) – Had a big week 2 performance with a 3 catch 122 yard effort. Coach Spagnuolo has even admitted to the media this week that he plans on increasing Danario’s workload in the future, in particular the teams wee 3 matchup with the Ravens.
Tolbert / Mathews (SD) – The Chargers get the opportunity to bury the Chiefs another foot deeper this week as they meet up in San Diego. The way the chiefs have been playing and now without Jamaal Charles, it would not be out of line to think the Chargers can build a lead and run the ball the rest of the game with Mathews and Tolbert switching up the pace.
Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) – The Steelers play the Colts this week who are looking every bit as pathetic and people thought they would without Peyton Manning. Big Ben has the opportunity for a few early scores but its more likely that this game will be dominated by Rashard Mendenhall.
Pierre Garcon (IND) – I have Reggie Wayne in my deep sleepers list also. Indy WR’s without Manning vs the Steelers… No Thank You.
Steven Jackson / Carnell Williams (STL) – Steven Jackson might still miss week 3 with lingering injuries. Even Cadillac now has been missing practice and is not a lock to start week 3. Hard to run against Baltimore anyways.
Dwayne Bowe (KC) – No stranger to this list this year, he returns once again. I love Bowe and I want to see his excel, but with all the struggles the Chiefs are going through, and a road game against division rival Chargers might be too much to overcome.
Davone Bess (MIA) – Davone Bess is one of the best route runners in the league and can create opportunities for himself in just about every game, but the Browns are very harsh when it comes to opposing WR’s. Miami will have much more success running the ball than they will throwing it.
